Sweave in TeXShop

I love using TeXShop for GUI editing of LaTeX and particularly Sweave documents, but it is a pain not being able to get it to automatically generate the pdf output. Luckily I found this post which explains how to add a Sweave engine.

Basically, make a file called Sweave.engine in ~/Library/TeXShop/Engines/


export PATH=$PATH:/usr/texbin:/usr/local/bin
R CMD Sweave "$1"
pdflatex -interaction batchmode "${1%.*}"
pdflatex -interaction batchmode "${1%.*}"

The just select Sweave as the document type and Typeset now works, easy.
